This seminar will examine which platforms and practices work best in different contexts, what dangers still exist for digital users, and just what encryption is.
With the safety of journalists and activists becoming less certain, and international cyber-attacks on the rise, the priority of digital security is increasing. Yet, encryption is poorly understood by most people, despite its ever-more central role in our lives.
The Digital Humanities Initiative and Global Studies Department are teaming up to present a seminar on understanding what encryption is and how encryption can help citizens, activists, and scholars protect their work, their communications, and their identities when digital privacy is not a given.
Questions to be addressed:
How secure is "secure"?
What's the point of encrypting?
Who can encrypt?
Are third-parties to be trusted?
